A friend hipped me to this link:

Canada should join the E.U.!

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/story/0,,1808159,00.html

(couldn't do a fancy link b/c of the commas)

Btw, the author points out that our military spending is very low even compared to the European average. I'm not defending excessive military budgets by any means - I just think we still have a long way to go before becoming our neighbours to the south. Yeah, there's that slippery slope, but I thought it was more interesting that according to that article, our international aid efforts are also below the European average.

Not to defend Stupid Steve but we really could use some helicopters that don't crash. And having some planes, boats, and trucks that work would be kinda cool. Our forces' equipment is in pretty bad condition - it has been for a while (my dad was in the reserves for a long time and I remember helicopters always being fixed when I went to visit the base with him). And as much as we don't realy use it for "war" type missions (Afganistan is a BAD idea... lets stick to peacekeeping... we are pretty good at it and the world needs it) it would be nice if they had stuff that worked when they do need it. At least this was on practical equipment and not fighter jets and more troops.

I'm more pissed about the taxes... so what are you going to do with your extra cent on the dollar this weekend when the GST goes down... oh wait... you won't see it in most places. There are so many things that are priced to come out even with tax... they'll just readjust to make more money... parking meters, parking lots... And the income tax is gong back up... hmmmm nope sorry... have to take that penny back.

I would have thought it was a no brainer, but it seems his ratings are rising? At least, I saw a headline that said so, but I couldn't bring myself to read it.

In time the government will fall. Stephen Harper is stepping on far too many toes, even Albertans.

I dunno, I'm just getting eaten up by it...more so because this government has been in power for what, 6 months!? Urrrggg, I'm trying to hold it back, I don't want to turn the conversation into a Harper Rag, but really he's such an easy target.

he is turning things into how question time is at the white house. What I find amusing was on the cover of the globe and mail, he said that the media and press don't like him. I wonder why.

is anyone else bothered by the fact that in press conferences Harpers' people choose which press are allowed to ask questions? Thus blocking from the press gallery any opposition or furthar investigation into motives and actions by the Prime Minister and his government. I was listening to CBC today and was shocked at Harper and how he claimed the "problems" came from the liberal supporting press. Seems a little too dictative to me.
